He was educated at Jesus College, Oxford from 1783, but there is no evidence that he graduated.
He also published a book of sermons. He was ordained in 1785 and, after a spell as a private tutor and curate, he was given charge of the Pembrokeshire parishes of Burton and Williamston in addition to being curate of Rosemarket. He became vicar of Begelly in 1793.
He published Twenty Sermons on Miscellaneous Subjects (1805).
He died in Begelly on 3 April 1802.
He was sympathetic towards the Methodist movement, and was on good terms with Methodist clergy such as Thomas Charles. Non-conformist clergy who visited Begelly were welcome guests at his home.
